TORONTO -- Casey Janssen doesnt have a date circled on his calendar for his return to the Toronto Blue Jays lineup. The Toronto closer is dealing with a left abdominal/lower back problem that sent him to the disabled list March 30, the eve of the Jays season opener. "Its just a day-by-day thing," Janssen said Saturday of his return. He says he plans to push as hard as he can go, but does not want to set a rigid timeline that might lead to disappointment -- or headlines. "We dont want to get ahead of ourselves," he explained. "We dont want to have dates where either I or you (media) guys or anyone else wants to have as a deadline or a certain date, where if I dont make it that day then its breaking news or something like that." Coming after a pre-season that saw him pitch just three innings as he protected his shoulder, it all means that Janssen is a long way off from where he hoped to be. "Im starting to trust it a lot more," he said of the problem oblique muscle. "Im starting to be a lot more active on it. The recovery is quicker, I guess. If Im active on it, within a few hours it (the discomfort) is probably gone. You wake up with a fresh start every day which is nice. "Ive just got to continue to progress. The further we get away from that Montreal date, the healthier its going to get." The Montreal date was the late March finale to the Toronto pre-season. Janssen felt something as he was warming up to go in against the New York Mets, but didnt think it was anything more than a "tight something." "Never did I imagine Id be sitting here in late April having not thrown a pitch," he said. The days after, however, he knew it was something more than tightness. Janssen is slated to throw a bullpen session Sunday, with another planned a few days later. A rehab assignment in the minors will follow. He has already had one of those shut down mid-month when it was determined he needed further rest. "I cant wait to throw (the bullpen session), Im excited," he said. "Hopefully theres no looking back." As frustrated as he is by the inactivity, the 32-year-old right-hander understands patience is needed. "Being in the position where I pitch in a game, youve got to be good," he said. "You dont want to let the team down by figuring it out up here. "So I want to be clicking once I get up here ... At the end of the day, my arms got to be able to bounce back, do the things Im asked to do here and then also have my side tested enough where, the same thing, Im not getting special treatment when Im ready." Janssen, who converted 34-of-36 save opportunities last season. says he only feels the injury occasionally in his day-to-day life. But given the importance of the bodys trunk to throwing, it is like Kryptonite to a pitcher. "Theres no injury thats fun," he said. "This one seems to take lot more time, even when theres no extreme pain." Sergio Santos has assumed the role of closer in Janssens absence. Denzel Ward Jersey

The Flyers were skating on their second power play of overtime thanks to a too many men on the ice minor on the Pens. With time winding down in the man advantage, Jakub Voracek threw a shot on net from the slot that Thomas Greiss stopped, but he couldnt find the rebound. Eventually it wound up in the crease, where Giroux snapped it home for his 16th of the season and the win. Chris VandeVelde and Luke Schenn also scored for the Flyers, who have won two of their last three. Ray Emery stopped 33 shots in the win. Pitt brings out that in all of us, said Philadelphia head coach Craig Berube. You know there was a lot of emotion in the game, a lot of physical play. Guys were battling for each other, and we played a real good hockey game. Chris Kunitz and Beau Bennett scored for the Penguins, who have lost their past three games. Greiss allowed all three goals on 40 shots in the loss. Well we want some momentum heading into the All-Star Break, said Pittsburgh head coach Mike Johnston. So weve got to regroup, recover and get ready for a tough team in Chicaggo tomorrow.dddddddddddd The Flyers drew first blood, as Schenn picked off a bad clear in the high slot and wristed it in for his second goal of the season at 13:11 of the first. Just over two minutes later, Philadelphias Zac Rinaldo left his feet in a boarding of Kris Letang and was thrown out of the game. Letang was eventually helped into the locker room and never returned to the game. The Pens were unable to take advantage of the ensuing five-minute power play, but did get on the board while short-handed in the second period. A 2-on-1 was finished off by Kunitz on a wrister from the left wing for his 14th goal of the season. Pittsburgh took a 2-1 lead at 2:01 of the third with another short-handed goal, as another 2-on-1 break saw Evgeni Malkin get the puck over to the left side where Bennett wristed it in. The Flyers, though, tied the game two minutes later on the power play, as VandeVelde redirected a Michael Del Zotto shot for his sixth goal of the season.
